    I use it with the 1090 no problems but make sure you have at least 2 tie downs on it and make sure the wheels on the lift are well off the ground

    They are ones I built from 3/8" round stock. The main reason I built my own, well ok two reasons, I'm cheap and because I have four sets of bicycle panniers and they are made to clip on to 5/16" or 3/8" bars. Most of the moto racks I looked at seemed to be made from larger tubing size. I'm really happy with how this set turned out, these are the third version I've built for different bikes.

    For those of you who find the short days of winter a tad troubling, here is a great site to track the lengthening days for your locale.
    Here, on the banks of the mighty Columbia, we have added 35 more minutes of vitamin D since the winter solstice !
    Soon, soon I tells ya, I will be powering down the driveway with something more exciting than my Toro snowflinger thingy!

    Oh that ship has sailed. 56 winters were too many, 25 of those were Manitoba winters.
